Prague City 3-Hour Tour with Changing of the Guard

1. Prague City 3-Hour Tour with Changing of the Guard

This tour provides a fantastic opportunity to see the main historical sights and monuments in Prague - including the popular changing of the guards ceremony at Prague Castle - within the space of 3 hours.  Embark on a sightseeing tour of Prague, which Bernard Bolzano once dubbed the 'city of a hundred towers'. You'll begin by the Estates Theater in the Old Town, which hosted the premiere of Mozart’s opera Don Giovanni. You'll pass the National Theater, enjoying a marvelous panoramic view of Prague Castle, the Charles Bridge, Rudolfinum - home to the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra, the Powder Gate, Wenceslas Square, the center of New Town - where Czech history was written, Charles Square, and the renowned Dancing House. Then, you'll cross the Jirásek Bridge into the enchanting Lesser Quarter, where you'll admire Saint Nicholas Church. The first part of the tour takes place on a minibus. Afterwards, you'll walk along Prague Castle, which once housed the offices of Czech kings. Soldiers from the elite Prague Castle Guard will welcome you at the gates of Prague Castle. You'll get to watch the ceremonial changing of the guard, which includes fanfare and a flag ceremony. You'll visit Saint Vitus Cathedral, where the Czech Crown Jewels are kept and King Charles IV, father of the nation, is buried. In Lobkowicz Palace, you can stop to enjoy a refreshing, delicious cup of coffee in a beautiful historic café. Afterwards, you'll walk down to Malostranske Square, where a minibus will be waiting for you. You'll pass through the Jewish Quarter, seeing the oldest synagogue in Europe along the way, and arrive in the Old Town Square, one of the oldest marketplaces in Prague. There, you'll see historic Town Hall and complete the tour at the world-famous Astronomical Clock, which dates back to 1410.

Compact tour with a focus on Prague Castle

The pick-up from the hotel was announced by email the day before. We found this non-binding additional service good. The trip goes by minibus to the most important sights. On the way, our guide Jana had time to explain this and that in detail due to the heavy traffic. Jana shone as an insider and spoke German very well. After about 1.5 hours we went to the castle. There about 1 hour to the river with the most important information. No time for extensive sightseeing. You should plan a whole day at the castle for this. Finally, another 1 half hour on the Old Town Square. Recommendable!

Complete visit by car and then on foot (castle, cathedral, changing of the guard) the garden, the Charles Bridge...
